ynopsis

The film tells the story of Isabel Archer (Kidman), a young woman of independent means whose innocence ultimately sees her manipulated by her 'friend' Madame Merle (Hershey) and the devious Gilbert Osmond (Malkovich).

The film is relatively faithful to the novel but caused controversy with an interpolated dream sequence in which Isabel has an erotic fantasy involving all of her suitors.

Awards

The film was released in 1996 and won several awards for costuming, screenplay, as well as acting awards for Hershey and Donovan. [http://imdb.com/title/tt0117364/awards]
